Subject: Wow!!
Wow!! Would I love to have this one back! Third show, still just sort of dipping the toe in the water - no real context at the time for this crazy cool beautifully played set. Show on a Saturday, with semester finals beginning the following Monday - my ration for the night was a couple of cans of PBR we snuck in. The Minneapolis Reader, a free weekly, had an article on the Dead coming to town. All I remember from that article was the author hoped Jerry wouldn't play Ship of Fools because the song was too slow. Guess what - Jerry played it slow and sweet!! After the house lights went on following the US Blues encore, my buddy and I worked our way to the seats just above the walkway backstage, trying to figure out how (and work up the courage) to get to the dressing rooms (yeah a dumb idea.) All of the sudden, to our complete amazement, out comes the band on the walkway directly below us! They're gonna play another song! We had to be the first in the audience to realize it. Never looked into it, but this split double encore, house lights up and the roadies already breaking down the equipment on stage, could be unique for the post retirement era. I think the energy of this show set the stage for the next show in the Twin Cities, 7-10-81, which sports a crazy post drums sequence of Playing > Uncle John's > China Doll > Uncle John's > Playing > Around > Good Loving E - Casey Jones , , , ,

This board sounds gorgeous - music and recording are top shelf for the era. Enjoy!!

This is a superb set of GD music with curveballs and interesting wrinkles in songs throughout the set. Jerry is on it for sure but it is Brent who is often adding flowing sustained keyboard lines that hadn't been heard in GD music since the days of TC and Pigpen. Also, a great rhythm devils/space sequence. CM soundboard treatment makes this one an easy 5 star.
